 The Senior Exit Portfolio Project (SEP) at West Salem High School was created to provide evidence that its graduates were career and college ready. The self-directed, active learning experience spans the entire senior year and includes the selection of an area of interest, a research paper, development of a project, maintenance of a portfolio of work and work artifacts, and a presentation of the research and project to a panel of community members.  Each student is assigned a mentor related to the field of study to help link the research to practical application. The mentor connection and the use of a community panel has encouraged deep community participation and investment in the educational process. The SEP also provides an opportunity for full staff collaboration, promoting vertical integration of learning standards across all grade levels and content areas.

Restricted Use

Rating

Personalized learning should not be devoid of standards. Standards give learners and educators a framework or matrix against which to evaluate and choose what to learn at what time and in what order. Quality standards can still provide plenty of room for learners and educators to co-design how learning will be approached, what goals will be most appropriate for the learner, what tools will be most useful, which strategies to employ, where and how learning will be accomplished and how best to show that learning has occurred.
